Course content

The sequencing of the human genome and advances in high-throughput genetic technologies have provided unrivalled opportunities for research in human genetics. The Medical and Molecular Genetics group offers a thriving research environment for genetics research, with expertise in gene identification, functional genomics and animal models of human diseases.

The Medical and Molecular Genetics group (Lead: Professor Eamonn Maher) offers a thriving research environment for genetics research, with expertise in gene identification, functional genomics and animal models of human diseases.

Research is grouped into two complementary and overlapping fields: cancer genetics and genome stability and developmental and metabolic genetics and epigenetics and imprinting. Facilities include high throughput DNA sequencing and microarray platforms, the National Autozygosity Mapping resource, and a zebrafish models of disease facility.
